IMG_0100.PNG This is strange. At work (Microsoft Outlook) and my iphone (picture) have Nov 1 as Election Day. Which it is not and actually is impossible. It never can be Nov 1. Can only be the 2nd thru the 8th. The fact that my Windows computer has the same date futher perplexes me. Anyone else have the wrong date showing on their iPhone?

What calendar is that from? (Doesn't really seem like it's Apple's US Holidays calendar, at least that's not how that one looks on my iPhone.)

It's just my stock calendar as far as I know. I never set anything up.

I posted he same on an internal FB page for work to see if anyone else has the problem on their iPhone (work uses iPhones) and/or their Microsoft Outlook. (For the record, my iPhone is mine, not work's. And I never synced it to my work computer. Real mystery to me this is )

Well, you should be able to tap on that "Calendars" button at the bottom to see what calendar that is (as in what account it's coming from).

Problem solved.

Co-workers have confirmed the same. Wotk computers show Nov 1 as Election Day, as do work cell phones.

Note my example says "United States" under Election Day.

While I work in the US, my company is British owned. Must be they goofed creating the calendar on the east side of the Atlantic.

How it got on MY personal iPhone 6s that never has been synced to my work computer? Well, my old 5s was synced to it and I did restore my 6s when new from the final 5s backup.

Bottom line, it's the Brits fault.

Sounds like some sort of work calendar issue basically. Again, you should be able to see what account the calendar is from by going to the "Calendars" screen using the calendars button at the bottom.
